Innovative Ways to Control The Spread of HIV/AIDS in Ethiopia
An brilliantly in-depth film focusing on the challenges women face with violence, lack of health services, lack of condoms, lack of access to testing. Even those that test positive can not afford the treatment. The Ethiopian Women Lawyer's Association is brilliantly documented by Dorothy, working on women's rights, focusing on violence against women, beating and raping of young girls.
